Laura's body was found with beating and stab wounds in an alley near the town's skating rink.

Laura Michelle, a trans woman from the municipality of Magangué, in Bolívar, was found dead at dawn this Sunday with blows to different parts of the body and knife wounds.

The body was found in an alley diagonally across from the town's skating rink. The victim, who was wearing a red blouse and jeans, had been beaten on the arms, face, abdomen and also had stab wounds.

Neighbors of the sector told the authorities that they did not hear noises in the early hours of the morning, so it is not ruled out that she was murdered in another place and her body abandoned in that area - taking advantage of the loneliness of the streets of the municipality at that time.

The Bolívar Police are carrying out the rigorous investigations to identify and capture the person responsible for this act of violence.
